I forgot to say, I was featured in Uniqlo's Orla Kiely launch email recently. If you're signed up to the Uniqlo newsletter, I would have hit your inbox on 6th September. (Thanks so much Uniqlo!) So, if you're a new reader, thanks for visiting and I hope you'll come back often.
I was chuffed to bits when Uniqlo asked me to style its latest Orla Kiely collection my way, not least because it meant I got to preview the collection (which, of course, I then went on to share with you!). And trying it all on was fun, too!
Now over a week since the Orla Kiely x Uniqlo launch, I'd say the hoodie I featured was one of the most popular items. It's sold out online and it's almost gone in stores in both the blue and claret colourways; I had to visit three Uniqlo stores this week to find one for a friend.
I guess its popularity is down to the fact that hoodies generally aren't that exciting. Yet with an Orla Kiely print all over them, they are. It's definitely my favourite piece of the collection, so snap up the remaining designs while you can.
The peplum blouses, meanwhile, did make the launch date after all and will be available online from tomorrow. I got one in the same print as the shirt I got from the first Orla Kiely for Uniqlo collection. This time round, the cotton's softer, the print's bigger and the colourway is retro brown and orange (which looks better than it sounds!). What pieces have you been buying?
